"(Shannon) was so amazing. Every time I had a question she answered in seconds. Jokingly, I asked her if she had a life outside of Real Estate. She was so knowledgeable and helpful. I am 76 years old and she helped me with so many incidentals. She took care of everything. She was warm and loving. She looked out for me and was excellent as an negotiator. There are not enough words to describe her many talents!"
- Alice M., Seller

- Karen Kilbride, Seller
"Shannon McCarthy is the best real estate Agent my wife and I have ever had the pleasure to meet. We have moved several times in the past decade and Shannon well above and beyond the call of duty to sell our home in Malta. We had already moved out of state and Shannon was there for us checking on our home and meeting various contractors whenever necessary. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate business, energetic, knows the market, knows the Saratoga Springs area very well and treated my wife and me with courtesy and honesty. We highly recommend Shannon McCarthy as an excellent real estate Agent if you are selling or buying your home."
- Cherry and Pete Smyth, Sellers

Shannon's rapport with professionals that are needed when making that final decision are remarkable. Her negotiation techniques are presented in a way that at the end of the day you are very satisfied. We would definitely work with Shannon again and recommend her to our family and friends."

"Shannon helped me find a great home in my price range. She was very patient and was never irritated about the amount of homes I requested to see. It is valuable to have a Realtor that responds to emails and texts very quickly."
- Brad Martin, Buyer
"A combination of three things make Shannon an amazing real estate Agent; first, she is extremely smart and knowledgeable about all aspects of the selling process. She really understands real estate marketing! Second, she is very responsive. I never had to wait for longer than 10 hours for her to get back to me, and third, she is really passionate about her profession and truly loves what she does! Shannon went above and beyond and exceeded all possible expectations that my wife and I had for a real estate Agent! I certainly will be recommending her services to all my friends and family! She works very hard and delivers great results - she sold our house in just 2 months in December 2010 and got us the price that we wanted!
- Andrey Birukov, Sellers
"Shannon had a great strategy for listing and showing the home I was selling. She effectively used comps and market knowledge to appropriately price my home for a fast sale while still maximizing my return. We had a contract on the home in 6 days at a selling price above what I had hoped to sell it for. Shannon had great insight and experience when we were negotiating terms with the buyer. She then helped me navigate through the selling process and all the contingencies and milestones. We closed on time without any issue. Throughout the entire process Shannon kept me updated on progress, issues, roadblocks, and how things were resolved. Shannon customized her level and method of communication to fit my needs. Overall a great selling experience. I would recommend Shannon to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent in Saratoga."
- Myles Cramer, Seller

"Shannon McCarthy is the reason we went with RealtyUSA. We were immediately drawn to her vivacious personality. When we were interviewing Agents, her presentation was far above the rest! Hardworking, professional, and very easy to talk to and work with. I would recommend her to anyone! The professional photographer she works with was awesome also!"
- Douglas and Mary Greene, Sellers
"Shannon's professionalism, knowledge of the housing market in Saratoga County, and honesty made her incredibly effective at pricing, marketing and selling our home. Shannon was attentive, knowledgeable of our property, and willing to listen to our concerns. She put forth a great deal of effort in promoting our property and providing positive communication with potential buyers and their Agents. Her outgoing personality and up-beat attitude made her a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process."
- Terri Adriance, Seller
"Shannon McCarthy is simply amazing! I don't believe there is another Agent in the Capital Region with her level of professionalism, knowledge or customer service skills. We had very specific needs and she navigated us to find the perfect home. Thank you, Shannon!"
- Mark and Sue Ellen Bolles, Buyers
"Shannon is exceptional! We interviewed several Agents. She is a vibrant, diligent, positive force that knows her business well. She is clear, on time with what she says she will do, very thorough, and has amazing contacts. She made this experience so easy. Love how she reviews who is showing our house before hand and is actively part of every step! We also loved and appreciated how technically savvy she is!"
- James and Karen Woodard, Sellers
“Just closed on our house today with Shannon! It was not an easy house to sell as we had a unique property but that doesn't scare Shannon. She actually enjoys the challenge and we couldn't have picked a better Agent. Shannon knows the business and she knows the area. From the minute I first spoke to her I knew that she was the one. She was there for each and every step of the process. She was even there in times that other Realtors might not be there for their clients. Shannon is honest and up front about the whole process. This is a quality that really meant a lot to us. Integrity is hard to find these days. She has a great group that works for her and we especially got to know and work with Jennifer. Jennifer also is a pleasure to work with and when Shannon was not able to be there, Jennifer was. I highly recommend Shannon and her team. I will definitely tell anyone looking for a Realtor to contact Shannon, she is the best!”
- Michelle Hodges, Seller
"Shannon is a remarkably professional real estate Agent who truly keeps the goals of her clients foremost in her mind. We were uncertain as to whether to sell or rent our property and, without bias, she explored with us the advantages and disadvantages of both options. In the end, we decided to hold off trying to sell and through Shannon found a very solid tenant at the price we hoped for. Shannon is thorough, alert, highly organized and bright. My wife and I found her to be a delight to work with and will call on her again when we put our house back on the market in a year or so."
- David and Marjoire Estridge, Sellers
"Shannon was absolutely fantastic to work with. My husband and I were buying a second home to be closer to my parents (our main residence was some 3.5 hours away). We were not local, so I needed someone I could trust, who understood and respected our priorities, and who was willing to do a lot of leg work. She bent over backward to make sure we had what we needed, and helped expedite many of the processes. She went above and beyond throughout the entire process, and we are happy to recommend her."
- Marcy Wang, Buyer
"Shannon took the utmost time with me. She showed me and my Girlfriend 60 plus homes. Shannon is by far the most dedicated Real Estate Agent I know. We traveled all over the place looking at a lot of homes. I highly recommend her to take care of any real estate needs."
- Jeff Lake, Buyer
"Shannon's knowledge of the Saratoga Region real estate market is impressive. Shannon listed our home in Colonie and sold it faster than we imagined. Shannon's experience and knowledge of the market was the reason for our success and we are very grateful. Shannon always had time for us. She competently guided us through the negotiation and closing process. We were fortunate to have Shannon represent us and we highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs."
- Joanne Green, Seller
"We were new to the area and Shannon did an excellent job listening to our wants and needs and helping us find a new home. She knows the area and worked tirelessly to find us the house that met our needs. She is very professional and respected by others in the real estate business. We would highly recommend Shannon to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
- Ann Jordan, Buyer
"Shannon is young, friendly, and full of energy. She makes you feel like you are her only customer and you never have to wait for ANYTHING. Being from Saratoga Springs, Shannon knows ALL about this area and the market. I consistently recommend her to friends who are buying and/or selling. You truly can't go wrong picking Shannon! She sold our house in 24 hours 2.5 years ago and some houses that were on the market at that same time are STILL for sale. We feel so lucky and appreciative to have sold and bought a house in this tough market and we owe it all to Shannon!"
- Amy Kyler, Seller/Buyer
